It is not recommended to combine methadone and suboxone together. Doing so can result in instant withdrawals.

Can you take methadone for 4-5 days to help suboxone withdrawal or will this prolong suboxone withdrawal?

Do NOT take methadone to get off Suboxone. Taper off Suboxone over 10 days. Cut the pills in eighths if you have to. Taking methadone for 5 days will only give you 2 addictions

Took 10 mg of methadone and still sick can you take suboxone?

No, if you take methadone, you should not mix it with suboxone. Make sure the methadone is out of you system before taking suboxone. Combining these medications can result in instant withdrawals and severe sickness.

I'm on 50mg of methadone for a month how long will it take for suboxone to work?

Will first you need to get off methadone or be on at least 5mg. And then the doctor can put you on suboxone.

How long after you take methadone can you take suboxone?

You can take methadone after suboxone but do not take suboxone after methadone. If you have any opiates in your system and take suboxone, you will go into withdrawal......

If you are on 100mgs of methadone is it ok to switch to suboxone?

Absolutely not. a Suboxone dr. won't even see you. You need to get your methadone dose down to 30mg. Then they want you off methadone for 3 days before starting Suboxone. They want you in the beginnings of w/drawals. The chemicals in Suboxone will pull the methadone out of it's receptors but not replace it right away, so the receptors remain empty and you get sick.

Will suboxone create a false positive for methadone?

No, each requires its own specific test. Methadone will only show up as methadone and suboxone will only show up as suboxone.

Can you take methadone when already on suboxone?

It is not recommended to take methadone if you are already on soboxone. Your system must be free of one before taking the other.

What will happen if you take 10mg of methadone 24hours after taking suboxone?

Hardly anything.

After taking 12 mg of Suboxone how long should you wait to take 20 mg of Methadone?

at least 24 hours I would say at least 24 hours. The longer you can wait, the more (and better) you will feel. I just switched over from Suboxone to Methadone 2 months ago & didnt really "feel" the methadone for about 3 days. I waited roughly 24 hours between doses because of all the "horror stories" I have heard, and I didnt get sick at all. Methadone and Suboxone are a strange thing when it comes to what to take first and vice versa. I was on 110milligrams of methadone and had to stop altogether without weaning because a broken down car. Nine days later I took 16mgs. of Suboxone at a new clinic and was deathly sick for two days. This is because methadone is a full opiate while Suboxone is a partial opiate. So if you take Suboxone and then Methadone, you will either feel the methadone or feel nothing(depending on your Suboxone dose) BUT if you take Methadone,especially for a long period of time, and then take Suboxone, God have mercy on you, it can throw you into AWS(Acute Withdrawal Syndrome) and its like a flu times 10 with insomnia

Can you get sick if suboxone is out of your system for 24 hours and you take methadone?

No, you will not get sick. As long as the Suboxone is out of your system you will not feel any withdrawal symptoms.

How soon can you switch from methadone to suboxone?

Yes, but ONLY after u have tapered to a 30mg methadone dose, THEN detox for 24 hours, and when u are in clear signs of withdrawal, then u can take a very low suboxone dose (1/2 a pill or so). if u do not do this, you will go through extreme withdrawal, which is 10 times worse than regular withdrawal. take my word for this, it is not something you want to mess around with

Are Suboxone and Methadone going to show up as the same medication in a 12 panel Non - DOT drug test?

Suboxone will not but the methadone will show as an opiate. I would give the methadone a good four days to get out but keep taking your suboxone so you dont get sick. i have been on probation taking u.a.'s for about a year and have been on suboxone for the same amount of time. I take a sub the morning of my test and it shows clean everytime. just quit the methadone and you will be fine!
